Gas prices in Ohio are inching toward record highs, dramatically impacting residents of the state.

According to the latest numbers from the American Automobile Association, the average price of gas in the state is $4.092 per gallon. The current record in the state is $4.159, which was achieved in 2011.

For comparison, the average price a month ago was $3.872, compared with $2.825 per gallon one year ago.

Furthermore, diesel prices in the state reached a peak on Monday, as the average price throughout the state was $5.242 per gallon.

“Drivers are paying more at the pump – a lot more – as the cost of gasoline moves steadily higher. In the past two weeks, the national average for a gallon of gasoline has risen 20 cents to $4.32, a penny less than the record high set on March 11. The increase is primarily due to the high cost of crude oil, which was hovering near $100 a barrel last week and is now closing in on $110,” explained a release from AAA.

The “Gasoline Misery Index” from the Metro Business Daily Network calculates that residents of Ohio will pay an average of $711 more for gas this year compared to last.

“With the cost of oil accounting for more than half of the pump price, more expensive oil means more expensive gasoline,” said Andrew Gross, AAA spokesperson. “These prices are creeping closer to those record-high levels of early March.”

Amid the continued high prices, Americans for Prosperity-Ohio protested President Biden’s visit to the state over the weekend by paying for some drivers’ gas. During the event, the group informed residents of certain Biden policies that they believe led to the higher prices.

“SW Ohioans are sick and tired of paying more and getting less. Our #TrueCost Tour highlights the truth behind rising costs while offering real solutions to make everyday life more affordable,” the group said.

"Residents of the Tri-Cities are scrambling to find fuel. In a local Facebook group, members reported more than ten stations that are currently out of fuel, which include multiple Circle K's and Exxon's," the report continued.

At the time of this report, AAA estimated that the average price for a gallon of regular-grade fuel in Washington is $5.18.

The national average for the same time period and grade fuel is $4.58.

California currently has the highest average price, at a staggering $6.06 per gallon of regular-grade fuel.

Amid the ongoing energy crisis, President Joe Biden announced last week that his administration would be canceling three oil and gas lease sales in Alaska and in the Gulf of Mexico.
